Tell me more about "gpsd"? I just bought a splendid Garmin, color
display and all but it sucks maximum regarding interface and formats!!!
The USB interface only and exclusively delivers the binary gdb format
which cannot be read by GPSBabel as i had to learn. We are collecting
GPS data big time and currently i need to have an XP up and running to
get the stuff downloaded from the GPS with MapQuest, then save it as
NMEA transform it to WKT and upload it to PostgreSQL with
I want to have an internet interface where i can dump the darned binary
Garmin gdb and a PHP saves it as GML with GeoServer. That would be nice.
Anybody out there with snippets on this road?
